The son of Peisistratus who succeeded him as the archon of Athens was named Hippias. Peisistratus was a prominent Athenian statesman and tyrant who ruled Athens in the 6th century BCE. He was known for his reforms and efforts to promote the welfare of the common people.
After Peisistratus's death, his eldest son, Hippias, took over as the ruler of Athens. Hippias and his younger brother Hipparchus continued their father's policies for some time. However, Hipparchus was assassinated in 514 BCE, which led to Hippias becoming more tyrannical and paranoid in his rule. Eventually, in 510 BCE, Hippias was overthrown and expelled from Athens, marking the end of the Peisistratid tyranny and the establishment of a democratic government in the city.
